WRONG PEOPLE IN JAIL


Kevin Zeese (Baltimore, MD) writes from the Manning sentencing courtroom:

Manning sentence: Courtroom TV cut-off immediately so media could not hear audience erupt with calls of continued support for Bradley and shouts of ongoing efforts to free Bradley Manning; but Bradley heard it. 35 year sentence was extreme, Manning will serve 2/3 plus get 4 years off for time served. Could also get parole and serve 1/3. Tonight 7:30 at the White House effort for pardon begins.

The one standing up for transparency, true democracy, and support for peace and justice gets 35 years.  The real criminals like Bush, Cheney, Obama and those corporate banksters/warmongers who are robbing us blind sip champagne and celebrate.  Their day will come.


Money & Corruption

We are sick and tired
Of being promised this and that.
We work all day, we sweat and slave
To keep the wealthy fat.
They fill our heads with promises
And bamboozle us with facts,
Then they put on false sincerity
Then they laugh behind our backs.

Money and Corruption
Are ruining the land
Crooked politicians
Betray the working man,
Pocketing the profits
And treating us like sheep,
And we're tired of hearing promises
That we know they'll never keep.

Promises, promises, all we get are promises......
